Thoughts on Skinny B*tch

Ok, I'm not really impressed guys. I've read about 2/3's of this book, and it is not doing a whole lot for me. I also feel more things in this book are backed up with the opinion of the authors rather than actual facts. There are a few gems I want to share....

"Brace yourselves, girls: Soda us the liquid Satan. It is the devil. There is nothing in soda that should be put in your body." (AMEN)

"Junk food will never go away. It becomes more alluring by the minute with laboratory-developed aromas, artificial flavors, chemical food colors, toxic preservatives, and heart-stopping hydrogenated oils. We know these are all impossible to resist, but no one ever got skinny on junk food. Use your head. Candy bars, potato chips, and ice cream taste like heaven, of course. But they will pitch a tent on your hips and camp out all year."

"Simple carbs suck and are nutritionally beneficial as toilet paper."

"And no matter what, don't fall prey to clever advertising used on the packaging. The companies that call their products 'wholesome' or 'nutritious' can be the same ones that add hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, or synthetic preservatives. Just read the ingredients of everything you buy. It's not a big deal, assuming you are literate."

More to come later when I finish this book!
